Correction on your correction. The official Thrustmaster Facebook page announcement says otherwise.
You never said t500 before bro. You were correcting me on the fact that I said firmware and not drivers, when in fact the official thrustmaster page refers to it as firmware. It doesnt matter if it didnt have an update for your t500 because thrustmaster would still call it as firmware if the t500 did have an updateCorrection.. I was referring to T500RS and for T500 the Firmware version ALREADY is the 47!! You may read that the Firmware is for SOME of the wheels... I went directly to Thrustmaster site and to the Firmware download link of my Wheel (T500RS) and no new firmware is available for such wheel!!
I’m back again.
Don’t understand why GTS is the only game (I found) that requires the TH8A to be plugged into the console via USB instead of through the wheel.
It’s a first world problem sure, but now I realize that keeping the shifter plugged in via USB doesn’t allow you to remap the shifter gates when playing other games like DiRT4. Now I find myself swapping out the cables every time I switch games. Annoying.
Have you tried updating to the latest firmware v28 to see if it'll allow the th8a to work plugged into the base for GT Sport. It was announced on Thrustmasters FB page but not clear if it's also for T300 and T500.
I only game on ps4 but when I got the new SPARCO R383 rim I had to update the firmware so it can recognise the buttons on the rim. Always was told previously that firmware doesn't effect console racers.
Running a T300RSGTE so I’ll give the update a shot. Thanks for the info!

Well in between entertaining family I tried the firmware update and now the wheel isn’t booting up. Had an error message appear on my PC during the update. Now no response from the wheel.
Will try the boot loader method next. Not giving up yet. Stay tuned...
I just received the T80. Any suggestions for settings? I know it’s the low end of the spectrum, but I’m new and the price point fit my budget. Thanks in advance to anyone who can offer suggestions!
You are correct and I realize I purchased the low end of wheels. Just looking for suggestions on the settings. Surely there has to be a good way to set this up. I guess I’ll experimentIf I recall the T80 uses a bungee chord system to generate resistance and does not have true force feedback (a servo motor powered base) to adjust any settings.
Would people recommend a T300 over a G29?
For me if it's in your budget, why wouldn't You? Newer tech, stronger motor meaning you will get better force feedback detail, it's shifter isn't all plastic if you choose to get one down the road, and it has a good lineup of swappable rims that really make a huge difference for a true enthusiast standpoint.
Only reason I could think of getting the Logitech over the T300 is long term reliability. But for me I use my T300 many hours every day and some days for upwards of 10 hours and have had no issues. Obviously others have had some issues.
Hello guys, question to t500 users, is your wheel heavy at ffb torque above 2?
I can't get a decent setting because at 1 the wheel is too light and almost no ffb, but at 2 it becomes too heavy...
